Marilinda Garcia completely destroyed her three Republican opponents in the March 24 primary and will now face Democrat Sheila Murray on April 21.

The vote totals:

Garcia – 742
Jim Holland – 272
Ed DeClerq – 32
Donna Mauro

The district is in the southern part of NH, which comprises the towns of Salem and Windham.

Garcia served once before in Concord before a Democratic tidal wave flushed out a few good men – and women  – on the Good Guys (GOP) side last year.

Dear Friends and Neighbors,

I have lived in the Lakes Region for many years and like you, I enjoy our beautiful lakes and mountains. And like you, I am very concerned about our future. Our friends and families are struggling – many have lost their jobs and can’t afford to pay their bills. While New Hampshire citizens have tightened their belts and made painful decisions, state government spending grew by 17%. Now with the faltering economy and shrinking revenues, our state must make difficult budget decisions.

That’s why I’m running for the District 3 State Senate seat. Now more than ever, I believe the budgeting decisions we make today affect our way of life. Raising taxes, like rooms and meals tax, will harm the tourism industry — the lifeblood of small businesses in the Lakes Region and Mt. Washington Valley. We can’t shift costs from the state to property taxpayers. Rather it is time to reduce unnecessary spending by prioritizing the services and programs necessary for our friends in need, while making sure we don’t keep raising spending to levels we can’t afford. Creating jobs in New Hampshire and getting people back to work means not raising taxes on businesses and means no sales or income tax…ever!

It might surprise many of you that I am running for State Senate, but I have always made public service to my community and my state a priority. Many of you may remember that I served several of the communities in District 3 as a State Representative for 12 years. As I always have, I will work across the aisle to develop common sense solutions for the challenges facing our state.

Please join my team and I hope I can count on your vote in the Special Election on April 21. Thank You!

-Jeb

Former Congressman Jeb Bradley plans to announce his candidacy for the Republican nomination for the special state Senate District 3 seat on Monday, March 23 at 10 a.m.

The announcement and candidacy paperwork filing will be at the Legislative Office Building behind the state house.

Bradley faces no opposition to the seat other than Democrat Bud Martin, who lost by about 500 votes last year to William Denley, the recent senator who had to resign because of a drunk driving charge.

The Democrats have their candidate, according to BlueHampshire.com.

That’s ditto for the Republicans, who expect to get behind former Congressman Jeb Bradley.

Here’s the juice on Bud Martin:

The Friends of Bud Martin Facebook group tells me Bud’s declaring his candidacy today, unlike Jeb’s misfired attempt last Friday:

Bud Martin will file for the special election on Monday March 9th at 11:45 am at the Capital building in Concord.

The weather will not make this easy, but if you can be there, be there.

It’s time to send Bush League Bradley a third message from the voters.

And if you can’t be there, here’s an ActBlue page that came along with the message.

The special election in Salem has produced these candidacies so far:

Democrats
Sheila Murray, Salem (11 Darryl Lane) 03079

Republicans
Marilinda Garcia, Salem (23 School Street) 03079
Donna Mauro, Windham (18 Simpson Road) 03087
James E. Holland, Jr., Salem (7 Spicket Lane) 03079
Edward DeClercq, Salem (5 Playcamp Road) 03079
